Here is last weeks and this weeks verses:
w e e k - e i g h t
"Ask, and it will be given to you;
Seek, and you will find;
Knock, and it will be opened for you."
m a t t h e w 7 : 7
. . .
THREE LEVELS OF PRAYER:
THE LEVEL OF PRESENTING A PETITION : 'Ask, and it will be given to you.'
THE LEVEL OF PRESSING A PETITION : 'Seek, and you will find.'
THE LEVEL OF PERSISTING WITH A PETITION : 'Knock, and it will be opened for you,'
. . .
'As you memorize this verse this week, meditate on these three different levels of prayer - and don't simply ask, but seek. And yes, keep on knocking. Never give up.
We have HIs precious promises: "It will be given to you... you will find... it will be opened to you". '
(The Joshua Code, pg. 54).
i love what Hawkins says in the introduction of this book talking about the 'Joshua Code':
'The Joshua Code is a challenge to keep God's Word in our mouths through memorization and to keep it in our hearts through meditation "day and night"'.
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success"
j o s h u a 1 : 8
